What a charming place. Lovely, pleasant hosts and individual cabins with lots of space, big, comfy beds, a spacious well equipped shower with plenty of hot water and parking right outside. Proper tea and coffee provided and a fridge and microwave and the wherewithal to eat in if required. And very reasonable too. Highly recommended.

We were in one of the "bungalows" near The Church Restaurant. Beautiful gardens off the small back deck. A great place to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (or two) with some cheese and fruit after a day of tramping. Each "bungalow" is unique and nicely, but eclectically appointed. There are no TV's...

Hi Two Nuggets, Thank you for you lovely review of The Church Accommodation. You stayed in our Garden Studios (not bungalows) which are our most economical Cottages and also the smallest, hence why they have no TVs, all the other Cottages have TVs in them. The Studios are well equipped for most single or two night travellers, served with tea...

We stayed here for only one night, but wish we could have stayed for longer!

We stayed here a couple of days in a bungalow in the church gardens. The place was cute, quirky and spacious with a lot of natural light streaming through the garden facing windows.

I visited Hahei on a whim last month. I booked a whirlwind trip around the North Island to check out some places that I want to being my American friends next year.

Gorgeous peaceful place to stay with lovely couple running it. Close to a great little restaurant. The walk to Cathedral Cove well worth it. The hot springs are something different to. Lying in the hot sand then a swim in a sea. Very rejuvenating.

Hi Robyn, Thanks you for taking the time to write a review we really appreciate it. Hotwater Beach is at its best at the moment although it is winter; there is a lot more sand accumulated on the beach allowing more time to access the hot springs.
